It's nice to see this acknowledged, but really, there wasn't anything that the web-team could do about it but send a word up to management. Chances are slim that anything will happen now. As for a boycott, an internet movement like this probably won't get enough people, just hope other vets feel the same way and don't buy anything.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Very mature you guys, everyone knows this doesn't do any good. On the other hand, massed urination on the walls of GW works much better. Now, @ Rev, since you designed the building, how many people would it take to surround the building and maybe we could organize a urinatory protest.

just one person urinating at the entrance every night would leave a hard-to-get-rid-off odor for a long time.

The web team didn't respond badly but the important thing is to see what GW does. Then the mass urination can commence...perhaps.

Only thing I have to say is that GW wont be ignoring people for being too hysterical. It is not the content of disappointed letters that matter to a business. It is the volume of the letters. When a ton of people get pissed at a company a company takes notice. People may be personally ignored, but collectively the sheer volume of disappointed letters is what GW is going to be looking at. There isn't someone from GW scanning every detail of each letter to ensure that the customer writing the letter seems level headed. LOST MONEY IS LOST MONEY whether its lost from an internet troll, a lifetime GW customer, or a lifetime GW customer that happens to be a troll.

Im not saying that I condone violent threatening letters, but assuming that a business has the luxury of "being the bigger man" and ignoring disappointed customers with a chip on their shoulder is ridiculous because at the end of the day GW doesn't care who you are they just want your money.

Im taking a break from 40k...again... The only chance you have of altering the course of events taking place in GW is to simply stop buying their product, and tell your friends to stop buying their product and their friends.

I personally will be taking the money I planned on using for GW products this year, and spending it on one of their competitors.

That could seriously work.

Its amazing the attention this is getting tho. In the past few price Hikes and GW shinanigans we bent over and accepted it. It seems GW finnaly pushed us over the edge by fuking the Down Under and giving us ANOTHER outragious price hike!

If this line of thinking keeps up GW will be forced to come out from under their blankets.

Really? I seem to remember this happening about 2 years ago, and definately 6 years ago.

Me thinks some people have short memories...

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

But seriously, it's nice to seem that at least some notice is being taken. What remains to be seen is their next move. Which I imagine will be nothing, but hey, they might just suprise us.
